Walking the Edelweiss Trail

It was our third day in the serene town of Zermatt. We’ve experienced gloomy skies, snowfall (yey, finally!) and of course a bright and sunny day!  We’ve been to the world’s highest glacier palace the day before so this time, it was time to explore more of the place on foot.

We set out of our cozy place in Casa Vanessa to wherever our feet would take us, taking pictures of everything almost every second.  We were awed at every turn…the meadows, the small wooden houses, the sheeps and the cows, the mountain tops dusted with snow with Matterhorn’s almost perfect pyramidal peak creating a picture-perfect scene like those from picture books I saw when I was a kid.

Our unplanned walking spree led us to the Edelweiss Trail. We didn’t reach the end of the trail though but we’re just too glad to have trotted along this trail as besides the awe-inspiring landscape, we saw chamois (similar to goats) and marmots (large squirrels) out at play. Perhaps next time, God-willing, we will make it to the end.
